Just thought i’d ask on here. Recently just made a track, sounds great until I mono’d it and then it just sounded really flat. I used alot of stereo FX and delays on alot of the mono instrument tracks plus a few stereo instruments in the process too. I’ve been reading if your mix sounds good in mono then it will surely sound good in stereo.
Pretty much I was just wondering if anyone has any experience on this front? Does it mean that it’s a bad mix or what? Should I be doing something different? It really does sound alive and spacious untill I mono it…
If I was to say send off to a mastering engineer would he/she mono it and master it that way? Thus leaving my mix sounding very flat? Last thing i’d like to do is send a mix off I think sounds great only to find out by the mastering engineer it’s pish! Any thoughts on this one would be much appreciated.
